Visceral leishmaniasis, Protein subunit vaccine, Sandfly salivary protein, animal models, Epitopes, Adjuvant



My work is based on the search of chemotherapy to control the visceral leishmaniasis condition that will ultimately serve the people from Indian endemic zone and all other countries. I am using reprofiling approach to find the best possible role of existing antimalarial and antibacterial drug in antileishmanial therapy. Apart from this, I am using immune-informatics approaches to design subunit vaccine against bacterial, and protozoan diseases. I am also trying to develop the subunit vaccine based on mosquito vector salivary proteins.
